I am the lady from Noddy. I relish this. probably too much. But I do. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be from a place called Toyland where the bad guys always lose. Sounds perfect to me.
Last week, I visited a friend who has three little girls. Later the oldest asked her mother when the lady was coming back. She asked what lady and her daughter replied, “The lady from Noddy.”
Children here in my little Serbian town are always interested at first and then later often annoyed at my speaking English. It is new and different. If I am a friend of their parents, they often get frustrated that they cannot understand what we are saying. This is the case even if we are attempting to speak Serbian, as my Serbian is like that of a cow.
They are much more honest about how bad it is as they just tend to ignore my attempts as if I didn’t even say a word. Grown-ups attempt to understand an even humor me by telling me how good my Serbian is… but, I know it is NOT GOOD!
So, I am the Lady from Noddy, speaking English most of the time.
I imagine myself as Tessie the bear.
She is described as clever and kind. I would love for those to be my adjectives! I must admit, at first I fancied myself as Miss Harriet, the pink cat!
Apparently she is fussy and neat. I am fussy, but not neat. Then, I read she speaks with a french accent. Not it! lol
Tessie the bear from Noddy is also a bit naughty… but then frolicking topless is much less of a big deal here in Europe is much less of a big deal in the States! I haven’t indulged in that yet. 🙂 Since I am still nursing, that would be a real milkshake. But I doubt it would bring all the boys to the yard. Na na na na naa.
In case you didn’t get that reference…
The Bear Naked Lady from Noddy wishes you all a Happy Sunday!
